  • Description


    We have a beautiful property in the south-west of Western Australia near the towns of Pemberton and Manjimup. Our property is set amongst the jarrah and karri forests of the south-west with these giant trees surrounding us.

    We have our own large lake covering an area of about 15 acres...great for swimming or just sitting and listening to the amazing range of birdlife we get or relax on the deck watching the spectacular sunsets.

    We have semi-wild kangaroos that come in each day to be fed, some you can feed by hand...see little joeys in the pouch with their mum.

    Our place will suit people who enjoy outdoor activities, a sense of accomplishment after seeing a task completed.

    An understanding of plants and gardening will be a big help, also previous experience with small hand tools...drills, circular-saw etc. Possible use of chain-saw, driving a ride-on mower, if you are able.
